Key documents

 

Geospatial Strategy for the United Nations
Prepared by our team, the strategy aims to contribute to the data ecosystem by enabling location information for the Secretariat, in collaboration with the United Nations Geospatial Network and further with Member States.


Prepared by the UN Geospatial Network, the Blueprint is the strategic inter-agency document on geospatial information that will guide the Network's future and activities through seven Transformation pathways.


Compiled by the UN Geospatial Network, the Landscape is the Blueprint's companion document which includes a review of the current status of the geospatial landscape in the United Nations system.


The Integrated Geospatial Information Framework (IGIF), prepared and adopted by UN-GGIM, provides a guide for developing, integrating, strengthening and maximizing geospatial information management, and to assist countries in bridging the geospatial digital divide, secure socio-economic prosperity, and to leave no one behind.


The Global Statistical Geospatial Framework (GSGF), prepared and adopted by UN-GGIM and the Statistical Commission, facilitates the integration of statistical and geospatial information. The framework guides and enables the production of harmonized and standardized geospatially enabled statistical data.
